WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) last week introduced the Donna M. Doss Memorial Act, a bill that would rename the U.S. Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings, Texas in Agent Doss's honor. Agent Doss had served more than fifteen years in the Border Patrol when she was killed in the line of duty on February 2, 2019 after she was struck by a vehicle in Tye, Texas. Sens. Cruz and Cornyn previously introduced this bill in September of 2020.

Upon introduction, Sen. Cruz said:

"Agent Doss served our country for over fifteen years with honor, and her life and ultimate sacrifice should be memorialized in her community. Every day, law enforcement officers put on their uniform and step into harm's way for all of us, and her death serves as a striking reminder of this incredible bravery. I'm proud to honor Agent Doss's service, and this bill would ensure her courageous service is never forgotten."

Sen. Cornyn added:

"In addition to leading a distinguished career with the Border Patrol, Agent Doss was a loving wife, daughter, sister, and stepmother. Her loss was another solemn reminder of the courageous sacrifices law enforcement officers and their families make every day, and I hope memorializing her service at the Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings will help honor her ultimate sacrifice."

This legislation is supported by the National Border Patrol Council and the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA).
